Pre-Settlement Funding Can Support Those Injured in a ‘Freak’ Accident

The company called it a “freak accident.” So-called freak accidents, though, have a funny way of happening more often when basic, legally required safety measures aren’t taken to prevent them.

It was the first summer home from college for “Zach” (not a real person), who had landed a seasonal job with a landscaping crew. On that beautiful spring day, he was working on the campus of an office park in the suburbs. He was trimming weeds near the side of the building when one of his colleagues passed by him in a riding lawnmower, about fifteen feet to his left.

He never saw what hit him. A rock, about three-quarters the size of a baseball–but much harder–got caught up in the big spinning blade beneath the riding mower. It was ejected at high speed, striking Zach in the temple and knocking him out cold.

He came to a short time later, but was hospitalized later that afternoon with severe headaches and what turned out to be a brain bleed. Months later, he has yet to recover. His doctors say he may have permanent damage to his vision, his motor control, and his ability to speak. He has also suffered some memory loss.

Investigators found that a safety guard that had been installed on the riding mower had been damaged and removed a year before the accident. The safety guard would have stopped the rock from turning into a projectile, but the landscaping company had never replaced it.

Zach’s parents hired an attorney, who told them Zach had a strong case. Zach’s treatment and therapy were not fully covered by his father’s employer-provided benefits, however, and they were starting to have trouble covering their expenses. Their attorney told Zach’s parents to call USClaims.

At USClaims, we offer pre-settlement funding, if a case is qualified for pre-settlement funding then we would purchase a portion of the proceeds of the anticipated court judgment or settlement for some cash now.
